Alice Cooper and his wife Sheryl Cooper have each received an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, following a prior bout with the novel coronavirus.
The Coopers' home state of Arizona is currently in Phase 1B of vaccine distribution, now allowing adults age 65 and over to make appointments for the shot.
"Everybody out here's been really nice," Alice added. "You don't feel like you are in danger of anything."
Alice was on tour in Europe last winter as the virus was spreading across the continent. He recalled spending "all day doing Purell, washing my hands. Every time you would touch something, you'd realize, 'Well, how do you know that wasn't infected?'
Although he felt safer back home in The Grand Canyon State, that's where he and Sheryl ultimately got infected. Alice says getting sick actually allayed his fears for his own safety against COVID-19, but he emphasized that he's concerned about more than just himself.
"...[Y]ou've got to consider everybody," he said. "You never know what the guy next door's health problems are."
Another famous Arizona-based rocker was less fortunate than Alice in his own experience with COVID-19.
Keenan, 56, was still dealing with lung damage and after-effects from the first infection when he got sick again nine months later. He was briefly hospitalized in early-December after developing pneumonia.
